Los Angeles Kings Training Camp – recap of key comments

As you know, the Los Angeles Kings 2011 training camp opened up over the weekend.

Most of the NHL players were in town for about a week prior and had been working out and scrimmaging at the team’s training facility in El Segundo.

Meanwhile, over 20 prospects were engaged in Rookie Camp, including a two-game series with the Phoenix Coyotes. According to MayorsManor readers, Brandon Kozun was the star of both games.
